Reducing Attacker Dwell Time

How to stop attackers before they can destroy or steal your critical information and IT assets

Today’s detection methods and technologies have predominantly focused on the real-time prevention and detection of attacks through 24/7 monitoring. What is missing are processes and technology that address detection of adversaries and threats that are already in the network or on a connected device. This type of post-compromise detection has typically been the realm of reactive incident response, but those that want to be proactive have another option; “threat hunting”.

This white paper examines:

  • Why adversaries are successful in persisting in networks;

  • The limitations of existing security technologies and methodologies to discover threats once they are inside;

  • How hunt technology and processes can work with existing security infrastructure to deny attackers the ability to persist undetected.
